Sarah Saltzer named SCCS Managing Director

The Stanford Center for Carbon Storage is happy to announce that Sarah Saltzer is joining us as the new Managing Director.

As much as 65 million metric tons of carbon dioxide flow into oil recovery projects each year to help drive crude and profits from aging wells. But most of the CO2 comes from natural reservoirs – not refineries, power plants or other sources contributing to climate change. (Image credit: Shutterstock)

Cash, carbon, crude: Stanford study highlights a path and price to coax emissions back into oil reservoirs

A new analysis looks at what it would take for oil companies to start pumping millions of tons of carbon dioxide into their wells to boost crude production – and what it would mean for the climate.
